PostSubject: Manuscript pitch   Wed Sep 15, 2010 11:24 am

Hello all,

I feel a bit silly requesting this, but it's important to me, and I know I'll be praying about it. I just sent off a 250-word pitch to the organizer of an online writers conference I attend each year. If selected, I will have the opportunity to pitch my latest children's picture book manuscript to an agent.

Your prayers would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Cheryl

It doesn't sound like a silly request at all, Cheryl. I will be praying.

You got it Cheryl. If they don't pick you we will send Fife after them.

Well, I didn't get a session with the agent, but I'm still pitching on Monday to the publisher. Would appreciate prayers for an acceptance of my next manuscript.

Thanks!

Thanks Pam. Well, the publisher said she would like me to send it along for her first chapter readers. Downside, not publishing it until 2015. Decisions, decisions.

I'll keep praying. Publishing is NOT an easy thing. I've also published a book some time ago, and it was a big deat to cope with. I know what you are going through.
